Chocolates, caramels sold nationwide may be contaminated with Hepatitis A

While QVC is known for retail and beauty the FDA is warning customers who bought Bauer’s Candies' famous Modjeskas to be careful

The warning, last updated on December 6, advised consumers to throw away any Bauer's Candies Chocolate or Caramel Modjeskas purchased after November 14.

The Food and Drug Administration is recalling Bauer's Candies Chocolate and Caramel Modjeskas sold on QVC and online because it could be contaminated with hepatitis A. Consumers and retailers have been advised to throw away and not to eat the affected sweets purchased after November 14.

Risk of infection from consuming the sweets is considered low, but anyone who may have eaten the affected sweets is advised to see their doctor, especially those who haven't been vaccinated against hepatitis A. The president of Bauer's sweets said the company voluntarily discarded all in-house candy, sanitized equipment, and began working with federal and stages agencies after learning about the possible contamination.

Certain sweets made by a company in Kentucky could be contaminated with hepatitis A, a highly contagious infection that typically affects the liver, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) said in a recent warning to consumers.

The FDA says the transmission of hepatitis A through the candy is low. "These agencies have cleared us to continue operation".
